Kuwait bought 28 Typhoon

Kuwait signed a contract with Italy for the supply of 22-x single and 6-ti double fighter Eurofighter Typhoon, reports the blog bmpd with reference to DefensеNews.




The planes will be delivered by the Italian company Alenia Aermacchi (part of the Finmeccanica group), participating in the international Eurofighter program. According to the publication, "Kuwait will be the first recipient of fighters in the version with the new radar Captor-E with AFAR of the development of the Euroradar consortium led by the Italian company Selex ES, also part of Finmeccanica."

Kuwait’s intention to acquire Boeing F / A-40E / F Super Hornet fighters was previously reported. It is not known how the current deal will affect the fate of American cars.

DefensеNews notes that "the success of Eurofighter is particularly important now, because it allows partially recover export positions after the success of its main competitor, Dassault Rafale, in promoting its aircraft to the markets of Egypt and Qatar."

According to the resource, “Kuwait became the fourth customer of Eurofighter fighters outside the consortium of the same name after Austria (which received the 15 aircraft), Saudi Arabia (ordered 72) and Oman (which ordered the 12).”

          Alexander Vladimirovich, I suspect a colleague has an advertising contract with Uralvagonzavod, but then this is a violation of the site’s rules, as far as I remember placing commercial information in the comments is unacceptable.
          But most likely the colleague has either a complex or a large uncontrollable hostility to the Americans.

    Kuwait already has such a palette of weapons that it is unclear how they deal with this Kunstkamera. Such a wide range of weapons cannot but lead to a mess in the field of logistics and services.
    But master, master, why not have fun, if pennies allow.

      the Arabs. and that’s it all :) I think their whole current strategy is calculated, just withstand the first blow and wait for the amers. and here it is no longer important to have spare parts or not. probably hope that before parts are needed they will come to save. and in terms of ammunition almost all equipment is unified. I won’t be surprised if they don’t have at all or a little spare parts in warehouses and they order them on demand. they probably think that for short-term battles this is not critical.

      Where did they get the variety from? Ancient Hornets from the beginning of the nineties and all. It was high time to change ... Of course, it was more logical to replace Super Hornets, less the cost of retraining and operation ... but if the money is burned, then why not?
      That's just the choice, of course, not really. On the "Typhoons" radars with AFAR have not yet "run in", so that "Rafali" would be preferable ...

    Explain why Western typhoons, f-18, f-22, f-35, tornadoes are positioned as fighter-bombers, and our su-30 and mig-29 are mainly like fighters?

      They do not have such a classification as a fighter-bomber, according to their multirole combat aircraft, that is, a multi-purpose fighter. These vehicles are equipped with the appropriate equipment: synthetic aperture radars, hanging / integrated sighting / navigation containers, plus a wide range of air-ground weapons. In theory, the Su-30 family also belongs to this class, but its capabilities to independently detect targets are limited by radar. Although the Indian Su-30MKI integrated Damocles hanging sighting container, but only in India.

      If I wanted to please the United States, I would buy Super Hornet, and I agree Mera Joota would be better if they took Rafali and not only because of AFAR, Rafal, if I’m not mistaken as a drummer, is magnificent, but Taifun has not been brought to the end until the end Old that Rafali in Mali carried out attacks at a distance of 5000 km (2 additional corrections).

      Yeah, and the next day this very SU-35 would be studied in the United States.
      Kuwait is at least our adversary and at most the enemy is on a par with our worst enemies like the United States or the Israeli regime.

    Kuwait, Kuwait ... I would be more interested in the news that the Russian Air Force received 28 latest fighters 4 +++
    generations. I do not specify examples of types and modifications for obvious reasons (approx.) As for the Typhoon, the unit is not bad, but expensive to maintain. Our aircraft will be cheaper, more efficient and more feasible. The article gives an example of 2004. air combat with a pair of F-15. Old data. This "Typhoon" would tinker with a modified (and modification is carried out) pair of MIG-21BIS to ++. And not the fact of the Typhoon victory.

        India still has BIS. The truth is not really like them there because the accident rate is high ...
        of the more than 900 MiG-21s received by the Indian Air Force, more than 400 aircraft crashed. At the same time, more than 130 pilots died.

        This is from an old article how an Indian pilot sued the Indian Air Force to recognize the MiG-21 fighter as an object "violating the human right to life."

    But do not comrades think that the contract was given to Europeans as a “bone” instead of money for the notorious Mistral?
    If, in theory, the contract was in the pocket of the Americans, and "suddenly" passes into the hands of Europeans, it seems suspicious to me, Kuwait is still an ordinary US puppet ...
